Today's Opinions

  • How incorporation will help Van Wyck

    This is in reply to Douglas Young’s letter, “How will incorporation protect Treetops?”

    The short answer is that incorporation in and of itself cannot protect Van Wyck against TreeTops’ development. What incorporation can do is protect Van Wyck against the catastrophic effects of the unrestrained residential development that will follow TreeTops’ development.

    Cities start small and grow by annexation. When all parties agree, annexation is a simple and easy process.

  • County should be wary of I-77 Alliance

    It appears, we, Lancaster County, spent two or three thousand bucks in an attempt to determine why the folks across the Catawba don’t want us to play on their team or come to their party.

    To tell the truth, I seriously doubt if York, Chester and Fairfield counties give a hoot and holler whether any new development ever lands on this side of Interstate 77.

  • Lancaster Ussery brings back fond memories of Gunter

    I haven’t written to the newspaper in several years. I enjoyed Kershaw resident Charles Ussery’s column about the Heath Springs High School’s football team during the 1950s. I wanted to let him know how much I liked the column, but I got busy and did not write anything.

  • Changes needed in AJ football program

    My name is Garrett Williams and I am an alumni of Andrew Jackson Middle and Andrew Jackson High School, class of 2005.

    I was always proud to be a student of Andrew Jackson because I went to school with good people. I had some really good teachers who provided me with the best education Lancaster County had to offer.

  • Why a vote for Freeman Burns is a vote for kids

    Upon moving to Indian Land, I knew I wanted to get involved in my community.

    I came across an article in the local paper for an eight-month leadership program sponsored by the Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce.

    During the course of the program, I was given the opportunity to see how the county operates and how I could get involved.

    I bring a background that includes management skills, operations and budgeting, negotiations, sales and marketing and my most valuable skill, common sense.

  • Teaching respect begins in the home

    I heard on television about a man exposing himself to someone at a large department store and how officials were trying to find him.

    I don’t know the whole story on that situation, but I’ve witnessed something, that to me, was just as bad.

    Recently, I was walking out of a store after my husband and I bought groceries. A boy about the age of 12 or 13 was waiting for either his mother or sister, who was still in the checkout line.

  • South Carolina’s best football for 10 years

    I have been collecting information about Heath Springs football since the school closed in 1969 up to the present day. I have interviewed players from every team from 1949 through 1968 and I played for coaches Calvin “Pap” McCaw and Sidney Max Cauthen.

    I thought it would be an unique opportunity to hear from an opposing coach from the 1950s who played against Heath Springs.
